Differences in Vitamin C

Published on by

As the summer rolls on we find ourselves gravitating toward vitamin C products that lighten, brighten, and tighten. But, are all Vitamin C products created equal?

One of the newest forms of Vitamin C, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is a stable, lipid soluble form. This type of Vitamin C is generally recognized by the skin better than a water soluble from of Vitamin C such as L-Ascorbic Acid.

Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate has many benefits that help it stand out from the rest. This form of Vitamin C has been shown to stimulate the production of Glycosaminoglycans which are proteins that keep the skin hydrated. It’s gentle, so even people with the most sensitive skin can use it. And the stability of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is about 18 months, which is longer than other forms of Vitamin C at about six months.

One of our favorite Vitamin C products with Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is SkinMedica Vitamin C Plus E Complex. This rejuvenating complex is formulated with 15% Vitamin C to help to reduce wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots while fighting the future damaging effects of the sun.

D.I.Y. Firming Body Scrub

Published on by

You can detox your body for fall with this DIY firming coffee body scrub. This luxurious body scrub contains coffee, coconut, and hydrating oils to tighten, exfoliate, and nourish the skin. Coffee is stimulating and firming and acts as an anti cellulite product, while coconut provides additional exfoliation and antioxidant benefits. This scrub is also great to use before you apply your self tanner because it will exfoliate and nourish the skin.

To make this homemade concoction you will need the following ingredients:

  • ¼ cup ground coffee beans -
  • 1½ cups raw sugar (for sensitive skin use pure cane sugar because it will be less abrasive)
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut-
  • ¾ cup macadamia nut oil or olive oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2-5 drops essential oil of choice (try orange or peppermint)

You will mix the ingredients together adding the honey and essential oil last. You will want to store in an air tight container at room temperature. Canning jars work great or you can go to any health food store or specialty shop and pick up a plastic or glass container. Apply to moist skin to your whole body, paying close attention to those problem areas, like elbows, knees, and feet. Rinse well with warm water then pat your skin dry. For added benefits apply a hydrating body lotion to seal in moisture. We like the Juice Beauty Green Apple Extra Firming Body Moisturizer.

You will want to use up your scrub in a few weeks time since there are no preservatives. You can make a double batch and give away as gifts too! While we do carry a lot of amazing body products at SkinStore, we love to experiment with DIY recipes too! Get creative and craft up your own anti-aging body recipe! Got any good ones?

New Items at!

Published on by

The seasons are changing, and we’re happy to embrace the cooler weather and all of the wonderful things that come with it. Some of our favorite autumn classics include pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks, cozy wool coats, and chilly football games. But our most favorite things about the new season are the new beauty products and trends, of course! Switching seasons also means switching skin care routines and incorporating products that will get us through the cold months ahead. Fall is also a great time to preview holiday gift ideas! Here are some of our newest launches that are quickly becoming staff and customer favorites.

Clarisonic PLUS Skin Care System with Deep Pore Cleansing in Blue. While you may go into lazy hibernation mode this fall, you shouldn’t let your skin do the same. Your face and body are in need of deep cleansing and exfoliation, and Clarisonic makes it fun and easy. The PLUS system works wonders for the face and the body with its four speed settings, and the new Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head gets those stubborn trouble areas clean and clear with the push of a button.

ARCONA White Ice will hydrate your skin through the icy cool weather to come, and because it’s now available in a jumbo size you won’t have to worry about running out too soon. This lightweight gel will moisturize deep within the dermis, won’t clog pores, but will protect your skin against environmental assault.

Even though it’ll be chilly out it doesn’t mean you have to hide your neck, your neck will get all of the tender loving care it deserves with StriVectin TL Neck Firming Cream so you’ll want to show off your new swan-like self. The TL Neck Firming Cream uses breakthrough niacin powered technology to visibly restore firmness, shape, and contour while providing an immediate tightening effect.

If you’re looking for a total regimen overhaul then look no further, because our newest addition is sure to be one of our best as Bioelements joins the family. Since the early 90’s Bioelements products have been dominating the spa world with their innovative formulas that provide clinical-results. Founded by one of the first ever licensed estheticians the Bioelements brand brings innovative skincare technology and the spa experience straight to your home.

Cool weather doesn’t mean skipping sunscreen OR deodorant, so make sure to stock up on both, because getting a sunburn in the middle of fall is completely possible, and unfortunately smelling bad is too. We’re loving the new LaVanilla deodorants because they’re free of all the bad stuff like petrochemicals, phthalates, proplyne glycols, and synthetic dyes. They are chockfull of powerful antioxidants, essential oils, and soothing hydrators.

One of our worst things about cool weather is chapped, red, dry skin. We’re thankful for ATOAPLM! The original ATOPALM Intensive Moisturizing Cream has a cult following, and the new ATOPALM 130+ Concentrated Intensive Cream will surely be a hit. Enriched with olive oil, grape seed oil, and vitamin E, this parabens-free multi lamellar emulsion formula mimics the structure of the skin lipids, healing to restore the skin’s barrier function. It’s also great for rosacea, and for razor burn.

Dr.Perricone, a pioneer in the skincare industry is always coming up with the latest and greatest. Perricone MD Cold Plasma products were a hot hit during the summer time, and they’ll surely sell like hotcakes in the fall. In time for fall Perricone MD Cold Plasma had a growth spurt and is now available in a 2 oz super-size! The best thing is that it’s a $300 value for only $229!

Revaleskin is also taking their line to new heights with three new products. To rid of hyperpigmentation induced by too much fun in the sun, the Illuminesse Brightening Complex will help to lighten dark spots while brightening the skin with a potent coffeeberry complex. Revaleskin Skin Firming Serum helps increase resistance to stress and environmental aggressors. And the new RevaleSkin Elette 4% Creamy Wash rinses away dirt and residue while killing p.acne bacteria and zapping zits in a jiffy.

Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione

Published on by

Introducing the newest anti-aging product from Dr. Perricone: Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione.

Acyl-Glutathione is the first patent-pending skincare treatment to reduce the appearance of creases. When applied twice daily customers have seen dramatic results in just 30 days in forehead, smile, brow, and marionette creases:

Glutathione (glue-ta-thigh-on) or otherwise known as GSH is considered a super antioxidant that helps our bodies fight off toxins that are associated with environmental pollution, poor diet,  and stress. Glutathione is actually a protein that is naturally produced in our bodies but healthy levels are depleted due to an increase of toxins in the body and as we age.
Glutathione boosts the immune system, detoxifies the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Without glutathione in our bodies, other antioxidants such has vitamins C and E are not as effective and can not do their job properly. Glutathione will help to slow down the skin’s aging process by protecting the skin from free radical damage.

Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione will help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm and tighten the skin while reducing pore size and improving the texture of the skin. It will also help to hydrate the skin while retaining moisture, and adding radiance to the skin. Perhaps the most noticeable difference in the skin is the reduction of facial creases in the forehead area, smile, and marionette lines. Acyl-Glutathione also contains Dr. Perricone’s key DMAE complex to help tighten and firm the skin. Other key ingredients include squalane, glycolic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and a blend of peptides.

Use this product as a preventative and corrective treatment to improve the overall health and condition of your skin.

Dermelect Rose Stem Cell Technology

Published on by

Dermelect Cosmecuticals has been formulated jointly by medical professionals and licensed estheticians who believe in products that give you real results. After three years of research renowned industry leaders bring you new stem cell technology, and the results are remarkable.

Dermelect believes that stem cells are the future of skin care. Because so many of us are affected by aging, stem cells can help combat the visible signs of aging and reverse already-existing damage.  Dermelect uses stem cells from the Swiss Alpine Rose. An alpine rose is able to thrive and grow remarkably well in the most extreme conditions, such as drought, sun exposure, and severe cold. Our cells are very important because they control the formation, maintenance, renewal and repair of the entire skin, our largest organ. Unfortunately, humans have a limited stem cell capacity, as we age our skin loses its and its ability to produce healthy tissue. Alpine Rose stem cells help to repair tissue, inhibit inflammation, and protect the skin from UV oxidative stress. The stem cells also address discoloration and loss of collagen because they fight off destructive free radicals to help protect the skin.

Dermelect has formulated 3 key products with stem cell technology that work synergistically together to address the top beauty concerns such as aging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. The three tiered products are: Resurface Stem Cell Reconstructing Serum, Resilient Stem Cell Regenerating Treatment, and the Resurgent Stem Cell Firming Activator. The key ingredients for all three products are alpine rose, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin C, and EcoSkin. EcoSkin is a patented ingredient that works to stimulate the skin’s natural defense and promote tissue repair and protein production.

A 17 day study by Dermelect showed 45% of wrinkles were less visible and the complexion was 54% more radiant. Dermelect believes in an easy and effective skin care approach that will address targeted concerns while using cutting edge ingredients. The products can offer real solutions for anyone with aging skin or those who wants to preserve the health and condition of their skin.

We’ll have some exciting stuff on our Facebook page soon (hint: BIG Dermelect giveaway news!) So make sure that you’re our Facebook friend & stay tuned for something wonderful!
